Patras: raids in the trains!

today early in the morning a group of 25 police entered the place we live and arrested more than 70 of us. Sudanese, Somali, Palestini, Afghan refugees. Even some with pink card. police repression has to stop. we want our human rights!

keep your hands off from our settlement!

It is more than one month now that we are afraid every day. we are forced by the Greek government to live under these conditions without any human rights. We have no choice. Athens is for many of us worse than Patras, because of the drugs, fights and police controls. here it is only a little better. the government want to keep us like this. we are free but we are in a prison too.

Because we are without papers, without food, without clothes, without money, without shelter, without medicine, without any rights. we want our rights back!

My hands got very tired. We did all kind of things like this. From 3 o’clock in the morning till 6 o’clock in the afternoon, I sad crumpled together, I couldn’t move. For 14 hours I couldn’t move, without any voice. Continue reading ‘Beneath a ton of newspapers to europe’
